    Traffic Yesterday was Nuts

    I went out for a ride yesterday, and the car traffic was horrible. The streets are semi-plowed of the snowfall from the blizzard we experienced, so in many places, there isn't a lot of room. It was NOT an enjoyable ride, so I cut it short. This is my vacation, and I wanted to ride.

    So instead, I went out at 6am this morning, with light, blinkie, and layered clothing, and did a nice 2-hour ride on near empty streets. There was a lot of glaze on the road, but I avoided any mishaps. I feel better now!

    It feels great to get those winter rides in. Glad that you feel better now.

    Is that foot of snow in your forecast also?

    My short ride was yesterday because I forgot my blinkie and it got dark. My long ride will be today because the forecast is for four days of rain and or snow.

    Somtime any ride is a great ride.

    Probably not a good idea to ride in traffic like that, a car could slide into you and kill you or something.
